turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - NOV 26, 2005
Pours light chestnut brown. Fruity sour aroma, nutty flavour without the expected butteryness. Okay-ish.

ElBorracho (472) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 22, 2005
On tap at The Globe. Poured a murky copper. Mild fruits on the nose. Raisans and prunes in what was a somewhat muted flavor to me. Had a bit of a funky mild sourness to it.

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2005
Bottled: poured into a De Konninick goblet...reveals a amber-brown, lightly clouded ale. Good cap retention and good lacing on the glass. Moderately carbonated. To the nose we get a ripe fruit (plumbs?) smell mingling with caramel, spices and some wet hay...but all reletivley understated...excellent nose. Medium-light body, creamy mouthfeel. Sweetish toffee-like malts mingle with fruity tastes from the yeast and some mild bittering in the finish from the hop mix. This is a light, but flavorful Belgian ale...very,very drinkable...I wish it were available here all year.

Cartoonkhaki (1252) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2005
Dark amber, caramel head, dark robust flavour. Good balance of malt and hops, mute creamy palate. Slightly fruity. Has tht stewed pear and apple flavour that the triple has but more subtle.

DerWeg (1590) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2005
Deep amber, lightly hoppy and slight bitter fragrance with yeast. Taste is fruity malt profile, only a little sweet, dry-grassy hops are present. Pleasant and forgettable.

blankboy (7171) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear bubbly orangey-amber with an average size lasting rocky off-white head. Nice lacing. Pretty good looking beer. Mild aroma of malt, fruit, light hops and yeast. Flavour is sweet fruity malt with a mild bitter aftertaste. A pleasant surprise to taste hops in a Belgian Ale. Not terribly exciting but still a well balanced, enjoyable and easy to drink beer.

rederic (3253) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 8, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2005 Amber-orangeish hue, with a shy tan-colored head, with a malty nose, toasty malt and fruity aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, malty character, grainy, toasty accent, with in an emerging hop bittrness finish.

kumite56 (473) - Cordova, Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2005
Amber color toped by a nice off white head with moderate lacing. Sweet, mild and nicely balanced. Moderate fruit present. Medium bodied and supported by a relatively low alcohol content. Not bad.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2005
Dark amber. Caramel, nuts, cheese, and alcohol aroma. Malts are dominant in the flavor, but not heavy. Silky finish.

Schanulleke (8) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2005 does not count
A little yeasty and a very subtile hoparoma (Saaz) when tasted fresh at the brewery. One of the best beers in the world.
